Head Coach of Dutch Football Team Says Mohammed Ihattaren Cant Play

Rabat – Ronald Koeman, the head coach of the Oranje, the Dutch national football team, has just made plain his desire to do everything in his power to thwart Morocco’s quest to convince Mohammed Ihattaren to play for the Atlas Lions.Ihattaran, the 17-year-old PSV Eindhoven attacking midfielder whose stellar performances for club have sparked a strong interest from Morocco, his country of origin, and the Netherlands, his birth country, is currently at the center of a tense-looking feud between the two national teams.Both countries have recently called up the teenage player for upcoming matches. Morocco’s newly appointed head coach, Vahid Halilhodzic, has picked the PSV Eindhoven player for his list of pre-selected players for the Atlas Lions’ upcoming friendly games in September.For its part, the Netherlands called up the youngster for a spot in its youth squad for the Euro U21 qualifier game against Cyprus on September 10.Amid heightened debates about which side the young prodigy will pick, Koeman is seems confident that the youngster won’t be picking Morocco over the Netherlands. “Ihattaran cannot play for Morocco in September,” he said in an interview.More than a declaration of intent, the Dutch coach’s firm comments, which he made in a recent interview with Dutch outlet Studio Voetbal, came with the suggestion, as MWN previously reported, that the Dutch are in no mood to let go off Ihattaren.Koeman said just as much in the interview, promising that the paperwork will be made tough for Ihattaren should he decide to pick Morocco over the Netherlands.“In case Ihattaren chooses to play for Morocco, he will have to follow some procedures, including filling in a formal request declaring his intention to join Morocco.”The process Koeman describes has nothing to do with the FIFA regulations dictating a player of dual citizenship’s decision to pick between the two countries he is eligible to represent.The process of filling in a formal request is often the last resolve for a player at club level when his ambitions or well being do not dovetail with that of the club he happens to find himself at.This was the case with Brazil’s Philip Coutinho when he decided to leave Liverpool for Barcelona. It is also currently the case for Neymar, who has formally requested to leave France’s PSG for another European giant.But when it comes to choosing the country a player wishes to represent, the player has no obligation to notify the country he is ditching. As long as he has not played for a given country in an official FIFA game, a player is free to choose any national team he wishes to join.In his interview, Koeman, fully aware of the FIFA regulations, seemed to be exerting pressure on Ihattaren to make his final choice “sooner rather than later.” That comment is a direct, deliberate challenge to Ihattaren’s current position.When asked about Morocco’s interest in him in an interview last week, the teenage player suggested he needed time to think before making his decision. “I am much honored to have been preselected [by the Moroccan coach]. It is a beautiful feeling. But I will not make my decision now,” he said.Between a young and promising Dutch squad setting out to emulate, even revive the country’s past, glorious days and the reportedly well-known tendency among Moroccan parents in the Diaspora to convince their children to choose the fatherland, Ihattaren’s will be a tough choice to make.Meanwhile, for all his strong-willed declarations about making it hard for Ihattaren to choose the Lions over Oranje, Koeman seems to understand that, at the end, and regardless of his pressure, the final call will fully be the player’s—and his parents’.“In any case, the decision is entirely up to him and his parents. But he will have to make up his mind sooner rather than later,” said the Dutch coach. read more

Paul Desmarais remembered by politicians past and present at Montreal tribute ceremony

MONTREAL — Tributes poured in for the late Paul Desmarais on Tuesday in a commemorative ceremony that featured a veritable who’s who of politicians and businessmen past and present.Four Canadian prime ministers, a former French president and five Quebec premiers were among those who attended the tribute to the late business tycoon at the Notre-Dame Basilica.Prime Minister Stephen Harper remembered Desmarais as a humble and generous man who was passionate about Canada.“He was open and frank and was completely unpretentious,” Harper told the audience, which included former prime ministers Jean Chretien, Paul Martin and Brian Mulroney.“This is something I always admired. He never once raised personal business interests with me.“Indeed, the one and only common theme of every subject we ever discussed was his country, Canada: its uniqueness, its prosperity, its challenges, its unity.”Desmarais, who took over a near-bankrupt family business to build a multibillion-dollar empire with political connections on different continents, died in October at the age of 86.The A-list in attendance on Tuesday also included former French president Nicolas Sarkozy, who has admitted he owed much to Desmarais.When Desmarais was awarded the French Legion of Honour in 2008, Sarkozy said he was president partly because of the Canadian’s advice, friendship and loyalty.On Tuesday, Sarkozy likened Desmarais to a tireless fighter.“Nobody will forget you because nobody has the right to forget your kindness, your goodness and your generosity,” the former president said.“And nobody will forget your love of life. My God, how Paul loved life.”Sarkozy said he was incredibly saddened when Andre Desmarais, a son of the deceased, told him of the death.“It was over. We’d never speak again. My dear Jackie (Jacqueline Maranger, Desmarais’ widow), not a day has gone by since that I haven’t thought about your husband.“In my life I haven’t met too many people with the standing of Paul Desmarais. I will always be proud to say I was his friend.”THE CANADIAN PRESS/Paul Chiasson Chretien, whose daughter France went on to marry Andre Desmarais, described Desmarais as an “incredible character.”The former prime minister told an anecdote of how he met with Desmarais after being named parliamentary secretary to then-finance minister Mitchell Sharp in the mid-1960s.“I told Paul that I didn’t know anybody in the big business world,” he said. “I asked for his help. Forty-eight hours later, we were having lunch with the president of the Royal Bank, Earle McLaughlin.“That was Paul Desmarais at his best.”Tuesday’s crowd also included Quebec Premier Pauline Marois and predecessors Daniel Johnson, Lucien Bouchard, Bernard Landry and Jean Charest.Also present were ex-media mogul Conrad Black, former Bombardier president Laurent Beaudoin, ex-Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe, former federal Liberal leader Bob Rae and his successor, Justin Trudeau.The Ontario-born businessman remained a staunch Canadian federalist after he moved to Quebec, where he became one of the country’s wealthiest and most powerful figures.THE CANADIAN PRESS/Paul Chiasson Desmarais’ path to power began in Sudbury, Ont., where he was born in 1927. He left law school to take over the family’s ailing bus company in 1951.A series of smart moves resulted in the creation of a holding company that in 1968 made a share-exchange offer with Power Corp.With his company’s diversified holdings in insurance, transportation, paper, media, and financial services, Desmarais was one of the most notable members of his province’s business elite, often referred to as Quebec Inc.His empire included Great West Life, London Life and Canada Life in the insurance industry; the Investors Group and Putnam Investments; the Gesca newspaper chain, with its flagship Montreal La Presse; and stakes in the oil company Total S.A. and the Pernod Ricard liquor company.He was discreet when it came to discussing politics.Only on rare occasions did he voice his views publicly. During his last annual meeting as Power’s chief executive in 1996, he extolled his belief in Canadian unity.“My profound attachment to Canada stems from the great liberty and freedom that my ancestors were able to enjoy in building their lives in a new country, the same liberty and freedom which allowed me as a young French-Canadian from Northern Ontario to realize his dream in building a business in all parts of Canada and abroad.”He helped open the door to Canadian businesses in China by leading a commercial delegation there in 1978. He was the founding chairman of the Canada China Business Council.However, it took eight years before Power Corp. launched a business venture there. It now invests in infrastructure projects in China through its stake in CITIC Pacific Ltd.By the time he handed daily operations of the company to his sons in 1996, Desmarais had seen Power’s assets increase to $2.7-billion, from $165-million.Power Corp., through its Square Victoria Communications Group subsidiary, and together with the corporate parent companies of the Toronto Star and Globe and Mail newspapers, owns The Canadian Press.Canadian Business magazine ranked Desmarais as the wealthiest Quebecer and Canada’s seventh-wealthiest person, with a fortune estimated at $4.4-billion.An art lover, Desmarais had one of Canada’s largest private art collections. Two wings of Montreal’s Fine Arts Museum are named in honour of his family.Desmarais also used his fortune to build one of the world’s most exclusive golf courses on his sprawling 75-square-kilometre Sagard estate in the mountainous Charlevoix region of Quebec.He suffered what company officials described as a “minor stroke” in 2005.Desmarais is survived by his wife Jacqueline Maranger, sons Paul Jr. and Andre, daughters Sophie and Louise, as well as 10 grandchildren.The Canadian Press read more

Liberals warned to be careful before approving China bid for Aecon

OTTAWA — The Trudeau Liberals are facing warnings to proceed cautiously and in as transparent a manner as possible as they weigh a Chinese state-owned company’s bid to take over Aecon construction of Calgary.The warnings come in the face of strong affirmations by the Liberal government that Canada’s pursuit of deeper trade relations with China is full steam ahead despite suggestions that such enthusiasm could risk angering the Trump administration during the North American Free Trade renegotiations.CCCC International Holding Ltd. of China has made a $1.5-billion bid to buy Calgary-based Aecon Group Inc., which has a storied 140-year history in landmark Canadian construction and engineering projects such as the CN Tower, Vancouver’s SkyTrain and the Halifax Shipyard.Aecon takeover expected to get warmer reception from OttawaCCCC International has some less auspicious recent history. The World Bank banned it from bidding on construction projects for eight years until this past January because of a bid-rigging scandal in the Philippines.The state-owned company has also been linked to the construction of artificial islands in the South China Sea, which has created high tension between China and several Asian countries.The government says it will review the offer to decide if there is a “net benefit” to Canada as required, but has not made clear whether a national security test will be imposed on the company. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said the deal will be reviewed “very carefully” under the Canada Investment Act.Rejecting the deal would anger China, which is anxious to start free trade talks with Canada, and maintains that an eventual deal would provide more certainty for its potential investors in Canada.David Mulroney, a former Canadian ambassador to China, urged the government to keep its guard up in the face of shifting circumstances with Beijing.“We can’t make every decision with a view to making the Chinese happy. The more you do that, the more bad deals come your way from China,” said Mulroney.“You have to show there are limits to our flexibility. We have real standards and we will live up to them.”Canada needs to pursue free trade talks with China otherwise it will become “hostage to an American negotiating strategy and the fate of NAFTA,” said Paul Evans, of the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs at the University of British Columbia.But the government needs to exercise caution when it weighs all investment bids by China, he said.“There is still a high degree of wariness about FDI (foreign direct investment) and particularly from state-owned enterprises,” said Evans.“It’s going to be really important for the government to be both transparent and forthcoming on what are the calculations that lay beneath their decision on either national security or net benefit to Canada.”The Chinese embassy in Ottawa argues the Aecon acquisition is in Canada’s interest, saying it is “purely a commercial activity.”In a statement to The Canadian Press, the embassy said conducting a security review is a matter of “internal affairs” for Canada. But it said the deal would be in the economic interest of Canada.“We have learned that in recent years, a number of Canadian companies, acquired by Chinese companies, have not only ceased to lose and begun to turn out a profit, increased employment, but also entered a broader platform for development,” the embassy said.“There are numerous such successful stories.”The government faced criticism earlier this year when it allowed the takeover of Norsat by China-based Hytera Communications Co. Ltd. without a full national security review. Vancouver-based Norsat makes radio systems and transceivers used by the American military and other NATO partners.In 2012, the Harper government allowed Chinese state-owned CNOOC Ltd. $15.1-billion purchase of Calgary-based Nexen Inc., in what was then the largest oil and gas purchase by China. But then prime minister Stephen Harper said the takeovers would not be allowed to continue unless there were in “exceptional” circumstances.Wariness about deepening ties with China surfaced again this past week.Following a similar warning this spring from the former interim Conservative leader Rona Ambrose, ex-industry minister James Moore, also a member of the government’s NAFTA advisory panel, said Ottawa risks angering President Donald Trump if it pursues free trade talks with China. Trump has a history of anti-China rhetoric.Trudeau, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and a spokesman for International Trade Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne have since dismissed Moore, saying it remains in Canada’s interest to push forward, unabated, with China.“There’s an argument to be made that demonstrating that we have a diversification and a broader range of interests than simple dependence on NAFTA might actually strengthen our NAFTA negotiating position,” Trudeau said. read more

Mens basketball Ohio State can now focus on opportunity for momentous statement

Ohio State senior forward Jae’Sean Tate (1) speaks with head coach Chris Holtmann in the first half in the game against Michigan on Dec. 4. Ohio State won 71-62. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorChris Holtmann was honest after Ohio State’s win against The Citadel Tuesday night. It didn’t mean much of anything.Especially not with the reigning national champion No. 5 North Carolina Tar Heels next on the schedule.“I thought this was an opportunity … for us to see guys play a little bit,” Holtmann said after Tuesday’s game. “I don’t know outside of that how much we can take from a game like this, to be honest, outside of the fact that we handled the ball a little bit better.”The Buckeyes are 10-3, ranked No. 46 in KenPom as of Tuesday night and actually might have a shot of pulling off an upset that few thought was possible at the beginning of the year, when disarray and uncertainty flooded the halls of the Schottenstein Center.But to the surprise of many, Ohio State has played solid basketball this season.Sure, there have been spurts of inconsistency, but in the big picture, Holtmann has maneuvered through the majority of the nonconference schedule with no bad losses on its NCAA Tournament resume and won two could-be pivotal conference games — at Wisconsin and home against Michigan.If there’s one area that Holtmann has yet to impress the college basketball landscape in, its his team’s record against teams currently inside the KenPom top 50. It sits at 1-2, including a 27-point loss to No. 12 Gonzaga at the PK80 in Portland.The one chance Ohio State has had to step into the ring with the heavyweights, it faltered mightily.It has a chance at redemption Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in New Orleans.The Buckeyes were just four games into the season when it squared off with Gonzaga. No one knew much about what type of team the Buckeyes were, including Holtmann and his first-year staff.“We got off to a 4-0 start and got really humbled out in Portland our first game, by just a team that’s flat-out better,” Holtmann said Tuesday.That game meant Ohio State couldn’t hang with the blue-bloods. At least for the moment it couldn’t. Since then, Holtmann has seen his team grow into one that can make stops when it has to, come back from 20-point deficits, but also blow double-digit leads.After losing to Gonzaga in the PK80 Invitational, Ohio State won 79-71 against Stanford. However, two days later, it blew a 15-point lead late and lost in overtime 67-66 to Butler, KenPom’s No. 53 team.The last loss the Buckeyes had was a 14-point loss to Clemson on Nov. 29, which doesn’t look as bad now, given Clemson’s 10-1 record with a win at Florida — a team that beat Gonzaga at the PK80.Ohio State responded from that game by handing the Wisconsin Badgers their largest loss in the history of the Kohl Center, and beat a Michigan team that has since beaten UCLA and Texas.Game No. 5 was a complete mismatch versus a team Ohio State wasn’t ready for. Game No. 14 is another blue-blood that Holtmann hopes his team is ready for by now.Notebook:Backups get extended lookOhio State rolled with a young lineup Tuesday night for a solid majority of the game. Andrew Dakich, Kam Williams, Musa Jallow or Andre Wesson, Kyle Young and Micah Potter were on the court for several minutes together, which Holtmann said happened because of the flow of the game.“We won’t typically sub like that the rest of the year,” he said. “The reality is when you get into league play consistently … it’s going to be about 8-, 9-, in some cases 10-guy rotation. So seeing some of those guys in extended minutes was good.”Adding to that, seeing Young and Potter, specifically, play extended minutes was encouraging, for the two are coming off ankle injuries. Young played 13 minutes in his return Saturday against Appalachian State and Potter played just one minute. Tuesday, Potter played 19 minutes and Young played 12.Moving forward, depth is going to be a key factor in Ohio State’s ability to keep top scorers Keita Bates-Diop and Jae’Sean Tate fresh in moments late in the second half when they’re needed most.“[Potter’s] got to earn his minutes back. So does Kyle,” Holtmann said. “The way you do that is you impact winning.”JaQuan Lyle talks about why he left Ohio StateFormer Ohio State point guard JaQuan Lyle quit the team back in April, and later transferred to New Mexico where he has to sit out a season, per NCAA transfer rules. Adam Jardy of the Columbus Dispatch interviewed Lyle at halftime, who said he left Ohio State because he didn’t have trust in the prior coaching staff.From The Dispatch:“I just felt like it was best that I went somewhere else. I didn’t feel like I could be successful both on and off the court here, so it was best for me to start over somewhere fresh and somewhere new.”Bates-Diop continues stellar playIt was an efficient night for the redshirt junior. He was 7-of-11 from the field and 3-of-6 from beyond the arc for 17 points in 18 minutes. Here’s what The Citadel coach Duggar Baucom said about Bates-Diop:“Bates-Diop, I think he’s going to play at the next level.” read more

How to be a gamer on the cheap

first_imgVideo games are not a cheap hobby. In addition to the base costs of consoles or updating PC hardware, at $50-$60 games are some of the most expensive media you can consume. To be fair, if you calculate the hours of entertainment per dollar spent, many games probably come out ahead of seeing a movie in the theater or even buying music. But because gaming requires so much money up front, it comes with greater risk — you’re out a lot more cash if you don’t like a game you bought than if you don’t like a movie you see. There are some good ways to cut back on your gaming budget, though, beyond just trading in your old titles. None of these approaches is going to have all the conveniences of buying the latest game at retail, but if you can make a few sacrifices you can get your gaming fix for way less.Keep up with salesThe most basic way to trim your gaming budget is to keep an eye out for sales, and there are several good places to begin.The community at always stays on top of the latest deals. It’s always a good place to check before making a purchase. Our friend at aren’t bad either.Steam is well known for doing regular specials, including their annual Summer sale. They also frequently sell multiplayer games in 4-packs at reduced prices, so you can get a better deal if you’ve got three friends who go in on a game with you.Amazon frequently offers promotional credits on their pre-orders, as well as a “pre-order price guarantee” — if the price fluctuates before launch, you’ll pay the lowest price it hits. GameFlyGamefly is essentially Netflix for games, so it carries with it the same common pitfall: rentals that just sit on your coffee table for ages, long after you’ve spent more than their cost in monthly subscription fees. But if you use Gamefly as your primary source for console and handheld games, it’s a very good deal. For $16/month you can have one game out at a time, so even if it takes you three months to finish a $60 game you’re coming out ahead. For an even better deal, grab a 1-year gift certificate ($156, or $13/month) and redeem it yourself.If you’re going to use GameFly, though, know that there are a few important tips for getting new releases. When a game you want is about to come out, you have to make sure it will be the only thing available on your rental queue. If you have an older “available now” game on the list, it’s likely that GameFly will send you that, even if you’ve sorted the brand new title higher. You’ll also need to make sure to send your previous rental back in time for the new game’s release day.If you’re the sort of gamer that goes to midnight releases, so eager to play the newest thing that you can’t wait, GameFly isn’t for you. The service usually ships new games on the release date or the day before, which means it won’t actually arrive until at least a couple of days after.Live in the pastGames are expensive, but the high prices don’t stay for long. If you can hold off on buying a game for even a few months, you can get it at a discount when it’s no longer the newest, hottest release. In fact, it’s not uncommon for popular $60 titles to hit $20 six months later. Obviously this approach isn’t for the impatient, and it means you won’t be playing and talking about a game when most other people are. But even if you can pick a few games each year that you can wait on, living in the past can save you a good bit of money.Go indieThe indie game scene has exploded in the last few years as digital distribution has made it easier for small teams to get to market. Not only are independently developed games almost always $20 or less, they’ve proven to be a source of fresh and interesting ideas, which is why games like Fez, Bastion, and Braid have been so talked about. You can find indie games on almost any platform, but the best deals are PC and mobile versions in the pay-what-you-like Humble Indie Bundles. Another benefit to independent games is that you can sometimes get early access to them. After Minecraft’s success with the paid-beta model, more indie developers started letting fans buy their way into the unfinished code.Free!The free-to-play model has become very popular recently, and for a budget conscious gamer it’s a good trend. Most free to play games are competitive multiplayer, like League of Legends and Team Fortress 2, but there are exceptions like the massively co-op Realm of the Mad God. If you don’t mind lighter experiences, there are also plenty of free games available on social networking sites, like Facebook and Google Plus, and on mobile platforms.Final thoughtsAt the end of the day, the easiest way to get the games you want, as soon as they release, is often to buy them at retail. But if you can give up a little of that convenience, you can avoid the higher costs that come with it. None of the individual approaches above may fill all your needs, but combining a few that work for you can definitely shave a few dollars off of your gaming budget.last_img read more

Criminal Justice Expert Explains Nuances Of Parole Violations

first_img X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Share 00:00 /12:57 center_img The recent murders of three Houston residents allegedly by a man who was on parole and had cut off his ankle monitor prompted Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo to question the effectiveness of ankle monitors. He also called for measures to better monitor parolees who could be prone to committing violent crimes.According to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ), there are 84,000 parolees living in the state and 18,000 are in greater Houston. Of those, about 1,200 are monitored by GPS or electronic monitoring.Houston Matters host Graig Cohen interviewed Kevin Buckler, an associate professor of Criminal Justice at the University of Houston-Downtown, who explained there are basically two kinds of parole violations.The so-called technical violations happen when a parolee exceeds a particular space that is part of his or her parole status. Another instance of a technical violation occurs when the parolee doesn’t show up for counseling or treatment services that are a condition of the parole status.In those cases, parole officers have discretion and can recommend the revocation of the parole, which can mean that the parolee goes back to prison.The other kind of parole violation happens when a criminal offense is committed. In those cases, the TDCJ informs law enforcement agencies so that they can look for the parolee and make an arrest.Nonetheless, that entails a process of its own because, once a warrant is issued, the information is sent to the Texas law enforcement communications center, which sends the information about the parole violation to the National Crime Information Center and to the Texas Crime Information Center database. That is what makes the information accessible to local law enforcement agencies.“You are dealing with a state agency who has to communicate things down to a local law enforcement agency,” said Buckler.Buckler also explained that sometimes there are “false” triggers about parole violations because, for example, the parolee gets in a swimming pool wearing the ankle monitor and that sends an alert.In that regard, Buckler added that the potential for false triggers can cause delays in notifying law enforcement agencies about violations because parole officers want to investigate what has happened before asking for a warrant.Another factor that can become a hurdle when it comes to capturing people who violate their parole is that the TDCJ nor parole officers have the authority to make arrests.Just this past Monday, Acevedo talked about that limitation during a media briefing on a two week operation to arrest parolees who had violated their status.

first_imgThe city of Baltimore will halt work with Lutherville-based psychologist firm Psychology Consultants, also known as PCA, following allegations of improperly screening police officers.According to the August 7 statement issued by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, city employees, police officers or family members will not be referred to PCA, until investigations from the city’s law department and the office of inspector general are complete.The group is facing allegations that it improperly screened police officers during mental health evaluations.“Mayor Rawlings-Blake has decided to indefinitely suspend services performed by Psychology Consultants Associated P.A. pending the outcome of ongoing investigations,” Kevin Harris, spokesman for the Mayor’s Office, said in the statement.“Through ongoing litigation, additional information has come to the mayor’s attention which makes it necessary to temporarily suspend our contract with PCA until further notice. Because this matter remains an open investigation, we cannot comment further, however the mayor’s actions today should not be interpreted as any determination of liability on behalf of PCA. The mayor will make a final determination on the status of PCA’s contract at the conclusion of the open investigations to determine if PCA has satisfactorily met the terms of their contract with the city.”In the meantime, the Towson group Atlantic OccuPsych will now perform services like pre-hire mental examinations and fitness for duty exams.The mayor’s office said that employees who would like to continue working with Psychology Consultants Associated can do so.On the same day of the mayor’s announcement, city council president Bernard C. “Jack” Young announced that he would introduce legislation during the council’s next meeting calling for a hearing into the matter.“We owe the taxpaying citizens of Baltimore a full accounting of its current multi-year, $730,000 contract with the healthcare provider in question,” Young said in the statement.“Along with the mayor and my colleagues on the city council, we’re all extremely concerned and alarmed by the recent allegations that have the potential to negatively impact the health of our brave officers and the citizens they’re sworn to protect and serve.”PCA did not return calls by deadline. Richard G. Berger, an attorney for PCA’s president, Dr. Kenneth Sachs, and the company, told the Baltimore Sun that Sach’s denied the allegations. “He has not violated any regulations, and that was supported by a decision by the Maryland State Police,” Berger, told the paper.The next meeting of the Baltimore City Council is August 17.last_img read more

First instance of ball lightning captured on video and spectrographs

first_imgSome scientific groups, including the Max Planck Institute, have reportedly produced a ball lightning-type effect by discharging a high-voltage capacitor in a tank of water. Credit: Wikipedia, CC-BY-SA-3.0-MIGRATED New insights into the one-in-a-million lightning called ‘ball lightning’ Journal information: Physical Review Letters More information: Observation of the optical and spectral characteristics of ball lightning, PRL, Accepted Monday Dec 16, 2013. … 90317bc60f3d7e42e93cAbstractA ball lightning (BL) has been observed with two slit-less spectrographs at a distance of 0.9 km. The BL is generated by a cloud-to-ground lightning strike. It moves horizontally during the luminous duration. The evolution of size, color and light intensity is reported in detail. The spectral analysis indicates that the radiation from soil elements is present for the entire lifetime of the BL. ( —Researchers in China have captured, for the first time, an instance of ball lightning, on digital video along with spectrographs. The accidental capture, detailed by the team in a paper they’ve had published in Physical Review Letters, offers proof that ball lightning does exist and because it was captured via spectrographs also, offers clues as to how it came to exist.

But until now, because of their rarity no one has ever managed to capture one on tape—that the researchers also captured data on spectrographs only adds to the specialness of the event.The researchers report that they were not out to capture video of ball lightning, instead, they were video-taping lightning strikes as part of a genera research effort. As they were recording, a ball lightning event occurred right in front of their camera. They report that it came into being just off the ground, travelled for about five meters before rising slightly higher and traveling for another fifteen meters before disappearing. The entire event last just over a second and a half.More importantly, the researchers were also recording with spectrographic equipment which allowed them to discern the main elements that made up the ball. They found them to be iron, silicon and calcium, the very same main ingredients in soil.Back in 2000 James Dinniss and John Abrahamson suggested in a paper that ball lightning was likely a result of normal lightning striking the ground. The immense heat, they suggested would be enough to cause silicon oxide in the soil to vaporize—the shockwave from the bolt would then push the gas up into the air where it would begin to glow as it was oxidized in the atmosphere. Six years later Vladimir Dikhtyar and Eli Jerby created what appeared to be ball lightning in a lab by following up on the ideas expressed by Dinniss and Abrahamson. The information from the spectrographs captured by the Chinese team appears to back up the theory as well.The researchers that caught the ball lightning on video also reported that there was a slight anomaly—an intensity fluctuation at about 100 Hz, which they suggested may have been due to the influence of nearby power lines.last_img read more

first_imgeTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) After leaving the Celebrity Big Brother house, former Apprentice star Andrew Brady commented on prejudice, saying: “It doesn’t matter how old you are, if you’re racist you’re a racist. If you’re homophobic, you’re homophobic.”Speaking shortly after her victory, Courtney Act said that she was amazed by the public support and validation of her beliefs.She said: “It’s amazing to think that the public have chosen me, I guess it’s validation of the things I came here believing in.”(Photo by Stuart C. Wilson/Stuart C. Wilson/Getty Images)She continued: “My inspiration for coming into the house was a teenage boy who didn’t quite know where he belonged or how he fit in, and not knowing what that meant.“I learned that it’s okay to be different.”This year’s series of Celebrity Big Brother has been called ‘the Year of the Woman’ due to its heavy focus on gender to mark the 100th anniversary of women’s partial suffrage in the UK.Courtney had previously said that she would have preferred a woman to win the ‘Year of the Woman’ series, and called her victory ‘slightly ironic.’Courtney Act is the drag persona of Shane Jenek, and was known by both names during their time on the show.(Photo: Channel 5)Host Emma Willis then asked Courtney about her role in educating both fellow housemates and viewers about gender and sexuality. In a later post, Del Rio also called Widdecombe a “nasty racist old bitch.”She used a hashtag accompanying a video of herself in Sao Paolo congratulating Courtney Act. The topic of gender and sexuality came up frequently during the show, often in clashes with runner-up Ann Widdecombe.“I was just having conversations with people about things that I’m passionate about,” Courtney said.Fans flooded to social media to celebrate the drag star’s victory on the 21st series of the celebrity reality show.Many viewers praised Courtney/Shane for their intelligent and calm stance throughout the show, with one fan calling them ‘amazing for the entire gay community.’(Photo: @MatthewDavies__ / Twitter)Many fans compared Courtney to runner-up Ann Widdecombe, who Courtney clashed with on issues of sexuality and gender.Several fans are calling Courtney’s victory over Ann Widdecombe a symbolic one for the LGBT+ community, as she is opposed to many LGBT rights, including marriage equality and the right for gay people to adopt.(Photo: @xtiancrtr / Twitter)Courtney’s identity as a pansexual, polyamorous, and genderfluid person was also mentioned frequently, with the majority of people praising Courtney/Shane.(Photo: @TooManyEmmas / Twitter)RELATED: Courtney Act and Andrew Brady reunited ahead of the final(Photo: @bonjourabbie / Twitter)Some fans took a more simple approach with their reactions to Courtney’s victory.(Photo: @ / Twitter)This series of Celebrity Big Brother is expected to be one of the last as Channel 5 bosses plan to axe the show after its summer series.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… RuPaul’s Drag Race star Biana Del Rio has called former MP Ann Widdecombe a “c**t” in a video celebrating Courtney Act’s Celebrity Big Brother win.Fellow Drag Race favourite, Courtney Act, won the British Channel 5 series earlier this week, beating embattled anti-LGBT former MP Ann Widdecombe to win the title.

Fabio Lobo Honduras drug trafficking presidential son

first_imgRelated posts:New Generation cartel is Mexico’s latest menace Global drug policy isn’t working. These 100-plus organizations want that to change. Costa Rican special operations unit participates in regional ‘war games’ The undoing of Gary Webb and today’s news organizations NEW YORK – The United States has indicted the son of former Honduran President Porfirio “Pepe” Lobo (2010-2014) on drug trafficking charges, U.S. federal prosecutors announced Friday.Fabio Lobo was arrested on Wednesday in Haiti and extradited to New York. He is charged with conspiracy to import and distribute five or more kilograms of cocaine in the United States and could be sentenced to life imprisonment, according to a statement from U.S. Federal Prosecutor Preer Bharara’s office.Fabio Lobo was brought Friday before federal judge Kevin Nathaniel Fox in a southern Manhattan court, according to the same source.“Fabio Lobo tried to break the law in the United States by plotting to traffic cocaine. Being the son of a former president does not mean one is above the law,” Bharara stated.Prosecutors say Lobo is accused of trafficking cocaine from 2009 to 2014, the same years his father was elected and served as president of Honduras, following a coup that toppled former President Manuel Zelaya on June 28, 2009.Hondura’s current president, Juan Orlando Hernández, recently has been carrying out an offensive against drug traffickers in his country, who play a vital role in transporting cocaine from South America to the U.S. Those involved in the illicit drug trade reportedly are linked to seven out of every 10 violent deaths that occur in Honduras, according to officials.After learning of his son’s arrest, former President Lobo thanked Hernández for having informed him of the detention, saying that he did not wish this to happen “to any father.”“I’ve always taught my children the right path,” the former president said. “They’ll always have me at their side, but not for something that is wrong. … If he’s guilty he should answer to the law.”Honduras is the global leader in homicide rates, with 68 per 100,000 residents, according to the National University’s Observatorio de la Violencia.
